I am having surgery soon for deviated septum correction and turbinate reduction. How many days can I expect to need for recovery (just looking for an average or other people's experience; I know everyone is different). I'm trying to plan my schedule around this surgery but I don't really have an idea of how many days I'll need to take off from work, etc. I'm hoping I won't be totally "out of it" after the first day.
Also, I hate taking prescription pain medications because they generally make me nauseous - was anyone able to skip taking them or just use over the counter stuff instead?
